On Sunday 7th August, Michael John Flooring held a race day at Leicester Racecourse to celebrate their 70th anniversary. With over 100 invited guests made up of staff and customers, it was a day of fun, sun and a flutter on the Michael John sponsored race.
It’s hard to believe that Michael John Flooring has been running since 1946. The world’s changed a lot in those 70 years, but they are still dedicated to supplying high quality flooring to Leicester and Leicestershire. This day was a great opportunity to celebrate all that's been achieved in that time, with speeches thanking staff for their hard work and customers for their loyalty.
Also welcomed were their colleagues from LOROS to the event. As part of the year-long 70th anniversary celebrations, Michael John have been supporting the Leicester based hospice. Every year, LOROS care for over 2,500 people across Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland. They provide free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill adult patients, their family and carers.
Special thanks to the guests, who donated almost £600 to LOROS. That money can cover the cost of aromatherapy, reflexology, or massage sessions, for 24 of LOROS’s patients or their family members. These help to relieve a patient’s pain and sickness and can reduce anxiety in patients and their family members.
